helical is where the vane or feather is glued to a shaft in a slight "S" shape for better spin in the arrow most use a right helical because a left spins the arrow in the other direction and can make youre points loosen.a straight fletch is what it says straight in line with the shaft .i perfer a straight with a heavy offset wich is a straight fletch going slightly across the shaft left to right

Interesting, thank you for the info.


Can you shoot a left or right helical out of a WB?
